4. Scottish Day / Highland Games in Wuppertal – Ein voller Erfolg!


the 4th Days Scottish / Highland Games of the Friends of Clan MacLaren have been a complete success. With the best weather, thousands of visitors informed about the history, background information about the Clans and Scottish culture.


For the first time there were 15 teams to the competitions against each other – this is a new record for us.

On two days visitors was offered an ornate and extensive program and the number of positive responses show us that we are on the right way.


Thousand thanks to all friendly clans; the clan MacLeod, McEl, MacKenzie, Campbell, and McCon, all market stall operators, athletes, referees, volunteers and sponsors, and all that we could have possibly forgotten for your support. You have all contributed to the success!

On 04 and 05 May our delegation visited the „15th Highland Gathering and International Pipe Band Championship 2013“ in Peine. There we spent two wonderful days with our friends of the clan MacLeod, MacKenzie, MacFarlane and MacGregor and the Highland Clan Coesfeld.

A special highlight was the visit of the Chief of the Clan MacDonald to our stand

We had also the honor of the Scottish Minister for Public Relations with our friends of the Clan MacLeod. As always, all was very hospitable and we have a lot of  fun. On two days we listening the sounds of the Highland Bag Piper from all over the world. Really impressive.

Thanks again to the organizers. It was a really successful event with many stalls, pipers, dance groups and athletes.

We are already looking forward to next year and will definitely come back!
